October 10, 2019 (Lincoln, Neb.) A community corrections inmate who escaped nine months ago, has been arrested by the Bellevue Police Department. Brandon Jones (#83097) left the Community Corrections Center-Lincoln (CCC-L) on January 11, 2019 for a work assignment, and failed to show up.  A warrant was issued for his arrest. He was arrested by Bellevue police the evening of October 9, 2019.

Jones is serving three to 11-years for charges out of Douglas County including terroristic threats and assault. His sentence began on November 16, 2015. He has a tentative release date of April 18, 2020. Jones now faces charges out of Sarpy County.

CCC-L is one of two community custody facilities operated by NDCS. Community custody is the lowest custody level and the least restrictive facility. Inmates are allowed to participate in work opportunities, attend school and religious services with prior approval and without direct supervision.
